Sick of the media screwing with the facts! Obama’s 110,000 refugees myth!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 9, 2018

Everywhere I look, the lazy Leftwing media tell us that Trump refugee admission numbers are low (yes! they are), and they draw a comparison to Obama’s last refugee cap (110,000) that he proposed in September of 2016 just months before leaving office.

Never once in his previous 7 years did he propose a ceiling (a cap!) that high and he came no where near that number of refugees admitted.

Was it all for show and for dumb reporters who would henceforth compare refugee admission numbers to the mythical 110,000? Or perhaps he was laying the groundwork for a big refugee push if Hillary had won the White House?

Here are the facts about the ceiling proposed in a couple of Bush years and then the Obama years from the Refugee Processing Center (Wrapsnet), the official State Department data collection site.

Notice that the ‘ceiling’ Obama set in September of 2016 (110,000) is left blank.  Trump came in to office in January 2017 and lowered it to 50,000.  It is not clear to me why the space is left blank, but it is.

Then look at the column “to the US.” That is the actual number ultimately admitted.

See that Obama came no where close to his own much lower ceilings in FY11 and FY12.  And, his other ceilings were way below 110,000.

So how about the media shut up about the 110,000 Obama year.

    What makes matters worse and one of the root causes of the matter, is that we have employers who keep hiring these people. Until we have a massive influx of these beings infiltrating and breaking into our personal physical home and apartment addresses, WE ARE NOT GOING TO SEE ANYTHING ACCOMPLISHED BY THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. We are the ones causing it to ourselves to loose our freedoms and rights. WE SHOULD BE SAYING NOT ONE SOUL ON THIS SOIL.

    Yes & Yes. Do I win a participation prize too?

    He had been laying the groundwork for eight years, as he hired more and more people to allegedly vet alleged refugees and beefed up refugee processing centers across the USA. They were HOPING to FLOOD the USA.

    Ans then BOOM! Along came Very Stable Genius President Donald J TRUMP and knocked all their little plans to H311! 😉 😉 😉

    Divine Intervention. Thank You Lord!
